Predicted Winners in Bold
Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Joao Sousa – Nole should roll.
Tim Smyczek vs. Marcel Granollers – And then there were none … US men are eliminated from the singles draw. The USTA should be a touch worried about the state of the men’s game.
Andy Murray (3) vs. Florian Mayer – The defending champion moves forward.
Stanislas Wawrinka (9) vs. Marcos Baghdatis – Stan plays his 3rd quality opponent in a row and wins for the third time.
Andreas Seppi (20) vs. Denis Istomin – Mild upset
Evgeny Donskoy vs. Lleyton Hewitt – I hope that court 17 has a few Aussies in attendance.
Tomas Berdych (5) vs. Julien Benneteau (31) – The Big Czech should win, but Benneteau is no slouch.
Tommy Haas (12) vs. Mikhail Youzhny (21) – This is a great match. I am picking Haas due to better consistency in 2013, but either man can win and cause trouble in the round of 16.
